Good Afternoon,

I'm looking for the answers to a few questions. I've recently picked up a rabintex 2001 style helmet for use at work. It's a great helmet, but I want to be prepared for the inevitable questions that will come my way.

1) Does anyone have a shot of the label on the inside of an US-issued MSA TC-2001? If so, could you please post it? I'm trying to find if they had NSN's or LIN numbers associated with them.

2) I've seen them jumped, and I have the paperwork for the Crye airframe/Ops Core FAST helmet, but does anyone have any information concerning jumpability of 2001 style helmets. Are they approved for airborne operations?

Thanks,
-Wes

Wes why don't you fill in your profile first before responding? :wink:

Mea Culpa, I was hasty and missed the profile requirement.

dub4lyfe, yes the MSA 2001 is jumpable and are approved for airborne operations. Best option for paper work as well as NSN number is a visit to the supply guy. Note however that your chain of command might not want you to use the helmet. Would wish I could have helped you more, but got out last Dec.

PS. Although the Crye Airframe can be used for airborne ops, I however think that it is a pain in the 4th point of contact to jump with. The Airframe is only useful for breaching, if you ask me. But that is just a personal opinion.

If you're jumping, call the Airborne school at Benning. They keep a list of jump-approved helmets, with the paperwork.

Not really tuned in to anything related to jumping, but curious as to what the problems you see with jumping the airframe is.

The gap between the front and back half which helps lessen the pressure buildup during breaching, will give a weird airflow in some positions when jumping. Just don't like the Airframe. As said it is a personal opinion, and opinions are like assholes, everyone has one. :wink:
